Cushions are always a great place to start when looking for interior gifts, but deciding what to buy from an endless range of colours and sizes can be slightly overwhelming. We recommend a subtle yet striking blue as it can really complement a neutral surrounding. This two bedroom home has made great use of turquoise blue cushions to add delicate splashes of colour in a more neutral environment.

Indoor plants are a staple of any well-decorated home, and the planters can make a lovely addition to the interior design of the entire room. It’s always best to go for natural plants but the maintenance required may be too much for some, so a faux one is a suitable replacement, especially when complemented with a colourful vase. Trendy artificial plants and planters can be found in all good decor shops. This one-bedroom apartment shows how far  good indoor plants can go in any living area.

Gifting something as subjective as art may not seem like the best idea at first, but by knowing your friends’ tastes and staying on trend, you can avoid any potential disappointment. Simple line drawings are a great choice, as are colourful escapist art pieces, both of which are currently very popular. We advise against buying originals as a gift, unless you are well aware of their taste. This two bedroom apartment in Shoreditch uses the artwork on the wall to complement dramatic room scheme.

Finally, we take a look at vases and look at how they can be the perfect addition to any home. Stoneware is a good gift choice as it is currently on trend, something which is especially true during the winter months. Clear glass is a classic choice that has remained relevant through the ages, so it may be a good idea to go for glass in more modern surroundings. This lovely three bedroom house in Highbury features a simple glass vase, which works perfectly in its setting.
